Summer Reading 2020: ◦ About the Election

Here's what Rebecca has in mind...

I've heard from a handful of students who are bummed about not having the chance to take an Elections class. I want to see students take a bigger role in building other ways of being engaged and in conversation about the election next fall. It occurs to me that having a summer reading book focused on some aspect of politics might be a good way to seed this. You can select from the list of books below, choose a title of your own, including long-form journalism or a podcast that will enrich a conversation about the election.

Some titles and podcasts to consider
